Saskatchewan Recognizes National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

Released on December 6, 2017

As Canadians mark the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women today, the Government of Saskatchewan remains committed to finding effective solutions to reduce interpersonal violence and abuse.

In Canada, December 6 commemorates the deaths of 14 female engineering students who, in 1989, were targeted and killed at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique simply because they were women.  This year marks the 28th anniversary of that tragic event.

“Today is an opportunity to remember all women and girls who have died as a result of violence and who currently face violence in their lives,” Minister Responsible for the Status of Women Bronwyn Eyre said.  “It is important that we use our collective voice to raise awareness and support violence prevention in our communities.”

In 1991, the white ribbon campaign was established to raise awareness about, and oppose, violence against women and girls.  The campaign also works to promote gender equity.

Today, all Saskatchewan MLAs will wear a white ribbon to pledge their support to end violence against women and girls and mark the importance of December 6.
